Disney-Pixar's "CARS 3" - Now Playing In Theaters Everywhere & New Clips Now Available! #Cars3

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), who loves to race, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage! Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2”), produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short) and co-produced by Andrea Warren (“LAVA” short).

My Thoughts:
Disney-Pixar have outdone themselves with Cars 3! I love most all of Disney-Pixar movies, even if they are all animated. What can I say? I'm a kid at heart. It was nice seeing Radiator Springs again. It was great to see Mater, Sally, Ramone and the other characters of Radiator Springs. This story is a come back story like no other! It's one that I've never seen or heard of before. This movie isn't predictable at all. I tried not to watch too many of the Cars 3 movie trailers, as I wanted to see the new Cars movie for myself.

My children, husband and I really enjoyed seeing Cars 3! Check it out for yourself to find out if Lightning McQueen will ever race again. This movie has no deaths, no bad words, no adult jokes, nothing. It's an all around GREAT family movie safe for all ages!

"The Atheist and The Parrotfish" By Dr. Richard Barager Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 6/30

Dr. Richard Barager, MD, a nephrologist by day and a novelist by night. He just released his latest book, The Atheist and The Parrotfish (Evolved Publishing, May 2017). Dr. Barager has such a passion for the written word that he often prescribes books and short stories to his patients as part of their healing process.

About the Book:
Doctors tend to the needs of their patients, but patients give meaning to the lives of their doctors. So it is for Cullen Brodie, a twice-divorced California nephrologist, and Ennis Willoughby, a troubled cross-dresser whose life is saved by a rare heart-and-kidney transplant.

Cullen's bitter disbelief in the afterlife is tested when Ennis begins to exhibit tastes and characteristics uncannily similar to those of his female organ donor--whose first name Ennis inexplicably knows. When Ennis becomes convinced that the donor's soul has inhabited him, Cullen sides with Ennis's psychiatrist, who tells Ennis he has subconsciously confused his emerging transgender personality with the imagined characteristics of his female donor.

While his psychiatrist coaxes forth Ennis's female side, Cullen is summoned to the South Pacific by an old lover for a reckoning of their past. On the island paradise of Rarotonga, he is forced to confront the heartrending truth about a tragedy that destroyed their college romance--a tragedy Cullen blames on religious zealotry.

Filled with resentment over what he has learned, Cullen returns to Southern California determined to shatter Ennis's delusion of ensoulment. But Ennis's eerie knowledge of his donor's greatest secret forces Cullen to consider the unimaginable: Is it possible he is witness to a verifiable incident of transmigration, tangible proof of a human soul? Or is he witness instead to the miracle of being transgender? Male and female at once, the glory of one and the glory of the other, both shining--like a parrotfish, another miracle of nature, changing gender apace, beside its glorious, ever-changing hue.

About the Author:
By day he's a nephrologist, treating dialysis patients and kidney transplant recipients. By night he writes fiction. He believes the two finest callings in life are doctor and writer, one ministering to the human condition, the other illuminating it, each capable of transforming it.

He earned BA and MD degrees at the University of Minnesota and did his postgraduate training at Emory University in Atlanta and the University of California in San Diego. He lives now in Orange County, CA.

He is a champion of the healing power of literature and sometimes prescribe novels or short stories to patients to help them cope with illness. Fiction explores meaning in a way science cannot. Sometimes only fiction tells the truth.

For more information, please visit and connect with him on Facebook, LinkedIn and Goodreads.

"The Atheist and The Parrotfish" is available for purchase on, other online book sellers and at your local book retailers!


Enter below using the Giveaway Tools form for a chance to Win your own copy of Dr. Richard Barager's "The Atheist and The Parrotfish!" Giveaway ends 6/30/17. Giveaway is open to residents who live in the main 48 continental United States only, 18 years of age or older. No P.O. Boxes, sorry.

Walt Disney Animation Studios Unwraps OLAF'S FROZEN ADVENTURE! #OlafsFrozenAdventure #Coco

Featuring four new original songs, the 21-minute featurette welcomes the original cast and characters back to the big screen, including Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), who is on a mission to harness the best holiday traditions for Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel) and Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff). Directed by Emmy®-winning filmmakers Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton (“Prep & Landing”), produced by Oscar® winner Roy Conli (“Big Hero 6”), with original songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson (“Between the Lines”), OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE will be in theaters for a limited time beginning Nov. 22.

“I’m thrilled that Disney Animation’s featurette OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE will be coming to theaters in November with Pixar’s COCO, said John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. “It’s a perfect pairing – they’re both beautiful, heartfelt films about families and how people carry traditions forward. I can’t wait for audiences to get to see both of these terrific projects together on the big screen.”

“Stevie and I were deeply honored to be entrusted by John [Lasseter] to create an all-new story with these characters we love,” said Deters. “We’re thrilled to have our film play on the big screen with COCO during the holidays.”

“We loved getting in the recording booth with these incredible actors who know their characters inside and out,” added Wermers-Skelton. “We can’t wait for audiences to see the featurette, enjoy their performances, and hear the incredible new songs written by Elyssa and Kate.”

OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE celebrates characters who won over audiences worldwide when FROZEN first hit the big screen in 2013. Earning more than $1.27 billion globally, the film won two Academy Awards® (best animated film and best original song with “Let It Go”) and a Golden Globe® (best animated feature film). Slated for November 2019, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ untitled feature-length follow-up to the hit film reunites filmmakers Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck and Peter Del Vecho with the Grammy®- and Oscar®-winning songwriting duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

Olaf (voice of Josh Gad) teams up with Sven on a merry mission in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 21-minute featurette “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.” It’s the first holiday season since the gates reopened and Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) and Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel) host a celebration for all of Arendelle. When the townspeople unexpectedly leave early to enjoy their individual holiday customs, the sisters realize they have no family traditions of their own. So, Olaf sets out to comb the kingdom to bring home the best traditions and save this first Christmas for his friends. Directed by Emmy®-winning filmmakers Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton (“Prep & Landing”), produced by Oscar® winner Roy Conli (“Big Hero 6”), and featuring a screenplay by Jac Schaeffer and four original songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” opens in front of Disney•Pixar’s original feature “Coco” in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.

Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself magically transported to the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”), Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.

This reusable stainless steel bucket is stocked with everything Dad needs to create a gourmet barbecue meal.

Look no further than your own backyard to find your Dad’s most cherished memories. It’s where he helped perfect your pitch, showed you how to play badminton, or helped set up your first volleyball spike.

My Review:
My family and I have reviewed a few items so far from For Father's Day, I let my husband choose something that he might like. He chose the Father's Day Chocolate Covered Oreos! They are delicious! I normally don't like chocolate covered cookies, but these are good!!!

These cookies were perfection! I've never tasted something so good! I only got to eat one. He had a few and the kids each had one also. I'm glad that he likes them! Now I've got another idea to get him that's special for other occasions too!

Disclosure: I received one order of Father's Day chocolate covered oreos in exchange for my post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.
